The Politicians - Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic (1971)
This is pure, unadulterated hard heavy funk in the style of early Funkadelic, early Ohio Players and those sadly underrated soul bands out of the Invictus stable (100 Proof Aged in Soul, Flaming Ember).
The Politicians were in fact the Invictus house band and trombonist McKinley Jackson was in practice its head. This album, originally released under the title "The Politicians featuring McKinley Jackson" in 1972, came into being after Jackson's contact with Funkadelic - he can be heard on Funkadelic's 1971 tune "Back In Our Minds". Impressed with George Clinton's entire Thang, he wrote and recorded "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic", a heavy funk track washed in psychedelic gimmicks.
